@piccalilli congrats, really an amazing piece.

Thank you! I just saw your post. That backpiece you have in progress is quite something! Takashi's work is so powerful, I follow him on IG and marvel at the work he does.

Last night, about 3.5 hours to complete this one. Cover up of an old demon head from 1979 and other work I didn't like done in 2008.

Very nice.  I'm looking to start an Asian tiger half sleeve myself.

How many of you guys get tattoos done concurrently to large project pieces? My sleeve is in progress but I’m getting the itch to get other work done, and I’m trying to figure if I should just use whatever money would go towards something else for sessions on the sleeve..

I'm in the middle of a sleeve with Scott Sylvia and I have went and got fun one session tattoos in between by him. I'd say go for it if you can afford it.

To quote KD Lang's 101 year old spunky Grandma (true story) "you better finish what you started". My advice is focus on completing what you have in progress. Awful lot of unfinished tattoos walking around, don't be a statistic! This has always been my approach. Eye on the prize.

I’m thinking I’m agreeing - someone else on the forum posted something along the lines of “there’s plenty of amazing tattooers you’ll be too early to get tattooed by, and plenty you’ll be too late to get tattooed by”. 

...or not have the funds, or the time, or whatever. 

Such is life.

Bummed out. Have had a five hour  session booked for over a month. It snowed today. Not a big deal in most places. But if you live Alabama, life stops and everyone stays home. Hoping my artist can get me rescheduled soon. 

What is a couple weeks compared to how long I will wear this thing?

For traditional Japanese tattoos (I'm working on a backpiece) it's considered disgraceful not to finish, so as @bongsau said, I say finish what you've started first.

I should clarify my advice on the subject isn't to abandon your current tattoo in progress, but if your in between appointments and get something in between I see no problem with it, providing you can afford to do so

Mine isn’t traditional Japanese, but your point still resonates.

The one-shot piece I was looking at, tip included, was roughly the price of my session cost for my sleeve...so, it’s like...knock that out, or get my sleeve done months sooner. It’s already going to take another year and a half or so for my sleeve to be completed and it’s my first multi session piece, so I’m getting that itch again to get work done sooner than I actually can manage.

I get your point, though. If it was just a lil’ jammer or something it would be no big deal.

Got this in November from Mike Fite when he was at the new Kadillac Tattoo in Hatboro, PA.
